I enjoyed Flesh and Blood even more than Blood Rights! Much more! I guess it could be because there was much less explaining of things. Painter just delved right on in.
This book takes place not long after the events of Blood Rights. Chrysabelle is living in her deceased mother's home now, and Mal is still living in his dilapidated barge on the water - with Doc, of course.
Chrysabelle still owes Mal for helping her. She promised him that she would help lift his curse by visiting the Aurelian, and eventually she finds out the only way left for her to do that requires a blood sacrifice: her own blood.
Mal still refuses to drink from Chrysabelle, and neither of them are even sure that he owns her blood rights now that Fi is dead. Not to mention the weird sexual tension going on! These concerns are pushed to the back burner once these two are brought back together for a greater purpose. Not only do they have to make the sacrifice required to go see the Aurelian, but Tatiana has gained more power, and with the covenant broken - she is free to wield it against anyone she wants. Not only that, but issues with Dominic arise, issues that involve Doc.
Doc has problems of his own. Fiona is dead, yet he still sees wisps of her ghostly form floating around the barge, and eventually finds out that she is reliving her death at the hands of Mal every single night. Doc makes it his goal to bring her back, and has to visit the witch (a voodoo witch who lives out in the swamps, eck!) who cursed him to do it. In finding out what she wants in return, Doc is faced with an impossible task.
We also have a brand new character in this book. Creek.Read more ›
Chrysabelle and Mal have a strong connection and the other part of the affair Creek isn't a strong one to unbalance that no matter how much he tries.
Creek is a member of the Kubai Mata a secret organization to protect the humans from all the othernaturals, they are trained and capable of facing all kinds of dangers and they have a deep knowledge of things, he is actually a cool character but around Chrysabelle he acts like a love sick puppy. Oh and I forgot to mention that the Kubai Mata wants the ring of sorrow!.....
In the beginning of this book Chrysabelle and Mal are mad with each other but soon they accept the fact that once more they must work together not only to visit the Aurelian to get the answer to Mal's curse but also to save Doc from Dominic.
Tatiana is still a bitch!
Other than that, the way this books ends is the main reason for the two star review. I understand when a cliffhanger is necessary; I know when the author needs some loose ends to continue the story. In this installment everything is left unanswered, we have so many things unresolved that the final act with the witches was totally unnecessary .
The unfortunate thing is that I have already bought the third one of the series Bad Blood and it's the only reason I'm going to continue reading.
P.S I really like Mal!
Her relationship with Mal also continues to grow and we see more instances where their need for each other can only end up in an explosive capitulation - whether for good or bad is yet to be seen. I totally adore Mal, he's so tortured yet so strong when controlling his inner demons around her. The two of them are the epitome of opposites - him so bitterly dark and her filled with glittering golden light - so delicately intertwined that one could not survive the other.
Bring in Creek, a sexy-as-all-hell Seminole who has been indoctrinated into a sect (Kubai Mata) with the primary goal of protecting humans while wiping out the vampire race, and you have the makings of a very interesting love triangle. Does he balance the light and dark? Can he be trusted even though he seems pivotal to Chrysabelle's development? Strangely enough, they both suit her and each provide something Chrysabelle needs - gonna be interesting to see how this one pans out as Ms Painter hasn't given any indication on who Chrysabelle's main squeeze would be :-) ... but my heart is set on Mal!
With the covenant broken and the veil between humans and othernaturals down, the story is blown wide open - war is inevitable as othernaturals struggle for power, evil sees further opportunity and humans come to grip with a world previously hidden from them.
I enjoyed this book just as much as the first but there were few things that I personally found distracting.Read more ›
